Being married has made Yeng realize a few new things about herself and as a woman.

She said, "Hindi puwede tignan 'yung asawa mo as your knight in shining armor.

"Dapat Xena ka. Gets mo ako? Dapat you're strong also."

Xena referred to the fictional titular character of the 1990s show, Xena: Warrior Princess.

Yeng shared her thoughts on marriage in an interview with PEP.ph at the media conference for the Divas concert with Boyz II Men.

BE STRONG FOR BOTH OF YOU

The Pop Rock princess explained why it's important to be strong-willed in a marriage.

"Hindi ikaw 'yung princess na sini-save lagi, kasi minsan, yung asawa mo, kailangan niya din ng someone na mag-si-save sa kanya…

"You have to be strong. Kapag nakita mo siya na weak, ikaw yung poste niya... abot mo 'yung kamay mo, ['tapos sabihin mo,] 'Love, kaya mo iyan, let's go.'

"Kailangan, strong kayo pareho. Kung yung isa mahina sa isang punto, magpakatibay ka kasi kailangan ka niya.

"Huwag mo siyang i-criticize for being weak at times, kasi malay mo, yun lang 'yung lesson na pagdadaanan niya.

"Pero kapag natutunan niya ang dapat matutunan, lalo mong mamahalin yun, 'Wow, ang galing ah, ang galing…'

"'Tapos lalo ka rin niyang mamahalin, sa totoo lang."

Yeng shares a funny anecdote involving their dog as an example. "Pumu-poo siya [yung aso] sa loob ng car. Si Yan, talagang nahilo.

"Oh my god, parang, 'Love, I don't know what to do!' Sobra siyang natulala.

"Promise, ako nagpulot nung poo-poo ng dog.

"'Tapos after nun parang, 'Love, grabe ka, I never thought,' sabi niya, 'Wow.'

"Sa ganda ko raw na ito—wow, ang ganda ko daw—sobrang, parang...

"Never niya daw na-imagine na gagawin ko yun.

"Sabi ko, 'Ano bang gagawin ko, e, hindi mo kaya? E, di ako yung gagawa.'

"Ang weird lang, sabi niya... pero sobrang nakaka in-love. Sabi niya, 'Hindi ka maarte no?'

"Kasi minsan, feeling niya ang arte ko. Parang, sa pagkain, ma-ano ako, e.

"'Hindi ganito yung timpla. Mas may masarap, mas masarap yung luto ng nanay ko.'

"Gumaganun ako. Mareklamo. Pero nakita niya parang... sobrang cowboy ng babaeng ito.

"Sobrang nahanga siya. Lalo na sa malalaking bagay. Kapag nakita niya, parang, ang strong mo.
